The TransUnion Award for Lifetime Achievement in the Mortgage Industry

“It’s humbling to be acknowledged. There are so many worthy recipients, so I am profoundly grateful for this acknowledgment” – Boris Bozic, Merix Financial

 

Boris Bozic didn’t always have his eyes set on a mortgage career. Originally set on becoming a real estate mogul, Bozic took a job as a mortgage broker as a way to educate himself about the industry – now, more than 30 years later, he leads Merix Financial, which has provided more than 200,000 residential mortgages to Canadians since it was founded in 2005.

While the road that took him to a Lifetime Achievement Award was unexpected, Bozic recognizes that he wouldn’t be here had he not taken some chances in life. “More than anything else, I’ve had the courage to take some chances,” he says. “I took a chance with Merix Financial. It was a piece of paper, and we brought it to life, and here we are 15 years later with 400 employees working for our organization with [Paradigm Quest]. So that is my crowning achievement – that you can leave something after it’s time to exit stage left.”

Marvin Daley, VP of business development at TransUnion, which sponsored this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award, describes Bozic as “a mentor and a pioneer in the industry.”

“We believe in a long-term sustainment of the brokerage industry,” Daley adds. “We believe that we are an important part of that, and the Lifetime Achievement award is a symbol of our long-term commitment to the mortgage industry.”
